    get a good dehumidifier.   Mold and mildew need water to servive.  A good dehumidifier will suck all the water from the air and kill the mold and mildew.

    you got to the right person nigthhag- and you are a friend on hubpages  too.I am actually a civil engineer in the waterproofing business so can advice on this.
    please check if it damp rising from the foundations and give me the palcement of the wall- meaning is it the outside wall on the side of which tehre is either a road or a patch of grass or something or is it the inside walls that have the damp too        ( meaning walls which have rooms on both sides.)also give me the maerial of construction and thickness. with all this dat maybe i can give you some advice but then this rising damp is the most difficult thing totreat in our business.
